In a world of injustice, nothing ever changes - until someone is tough enough to challenge the existing order. Most people find it's easier to look the other way. But there are always a few bold souls who simply can't. They're the ones who stand up, speak out, sit in, and generally refuse to shut up. Are you one of them?
The serving professions (teaching, social work, juvenile justice, community health, child life, etc.) are made up of people with inner fortitude - humble champions committed to changing the world, one person at a time.
It's all about patience, endurance, and teamwork. Most people aren't tough enough to stick with a struggling kid, vowel after vowel, word after word. But then, there are the stubborn few who don't know how the meaning of "quit." Who show up. Stay with it. And, in the end, who save a child's future.
